Smith Journal Volume Six

Monday March 11, 2013 Written by smith

Smith six is on shelves today and we think it could be the best yet thanks to the supreme skills of those on the pages, like boat builder Ray Gascoigne.

After a lifetime spent at sea, Gascoigne has kept his connection with the water by building bottled boats - each one a real ship he's sailed on, or seen. His story sets the tone for the volume in a way. It's full of people who devote their time to doing one thing well, be it building a hotel, spawning magic mushrooms, designing a table, kicking ass at judo or making smart, opinionated newspapers.

The quirk is off the charts on the pages too. Meet a guy who was once the 'saviour of the universe'. Learn all about South Africa's most infamous trickster (and read it in Zulu). Discover a substance that can cook dinner and clean toilets. And find out how to pickle with gin.

Across the ditch: Volume six should hit stockists in New Zealand on March 25. Ask your local if it's not on shelves then.

Overseas readers: We'll be with you April 2013, but if that's too far away you can order a copy here and we'll send it straight out.
